This incomplete color film with opening and closing titles missing offers an educational look at breast exam procedures in a doctor’s office, as well as instructions for performing a self-exam at home (TRT: 7:56). It likely dates to the late 1950s/early 1960s as it predates the use of mammography. Modern mammography methods were developed late in the 1960s and first officially recommended by the American Cancer Society in 1976.  The first completely dedicated mammography unit was developed...

In the depths of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt promised the American people a “New Deal.” Over the decade 1933-43, a constellation of federally sponsored programs put millions of jobless Americans back to work and helped to revive a moribund economy. The result was a rich landscape of public works across the nation, often of outstanding beauty, utility and craftsmanship. No city, town, or rural area was untouched by the New Deal. Hundreds of thousands of roads,...

Dating to 1929 and released by Cine Art, "Uncle Si and the Sirens" is a hilarious short film that mixes the excitement of the era's most hi-tech and revolutionary technology — television — with unclothed girls. This type of "nudie cutie" film was fairly common in the era, and Cine Art specialized in releasing these kind of titles. The plot of this film is more complex than most (they typically featured artists models and zero plot). Here, a farmer named Uncle Si sits at...

The Case of the Ancient Astronauts Search Educational Film Journals at Media History Project for references to this film Summary Examines the claims made by Erich Von Daniken in his book Chariots Of The Gods that astronauts from other worlds have already visited Earth, and have left evidence, such as the pyramids and the statues on Easter Island.
